Managing your time

For effective group building, it may be helpful for groups to come together in class time to work on tasks. Strategies could include:

  • allowing short planning sessions (say 10 minutes) in early classes
  • focussing on components of the group task in class based activities
  • allocating out-of-class group times where you can facilitate discussion and offer suggestions. Consider making the meeting a component of the task; it may provide a yard-stick on the progress of all groups.

A detailed assessment schedule in the Unit of Study outline will provide a useful monitoring tool for you and the students.
